Default cz or glock?

I know its kind of apples and oranges, but both pistols meet the criteria I want in a pistol. Its between the Glock 17 or the Cz 75 Omega. They both have a barrel at least 4.5" inches(well the Glock is 4.49" but I'm not that picky) they both are 9mm and the both have a long standing reputation for being extremely reliable and durable pistols. I wasn't really worried about striker or hammer, I like both. Some things I like about each one and some I don't:
Cz- standard with night sights, come with three mags and lights single action trigger. But I don't like that I will be dealing with two different trigger pulls, so I would probably change it to sao which ups my initial investment
Glock- by the way I want the Gen 3, I like the availability of parts and inexpensive magazines. Consistent trigger pull. If I turn it into a carry piece it is not as heavy being polymer. It doesn't have night sights standard on the model I have priced.
Just some insight as to my likes and dislikes, but I'd like any opinions and experiences I can get as to make a better decision and be more at ease when I make my purchase.

Glock has no manual safety, big no fly zone for me for carrying. Other than that it's a perfect firearm, all of them are as far as I'm concerned.

CZ is da/sa which I like and known for quality, but far too large for personal defense for me.

If you're really planning on turning this into a carry piece I'd say keep looking. Try the CZ 2075.

Neither of these guns are going to be for carry, mostly a bedside and range gun. Possible a gun I will carry to tactical classes if am presented the opportunity

Then I'd Glock it up without question. Awesome trigger with consistent pull and runs flawlessly.

Yup, just like the hammerless DAO police revolvers it was marketed to replace.

Cz no question. I think glock triggers are horrid and the grip angle is all wrong. Glocks arent natural pointing guns more reminiscent of something like a nambu.

They are both going to do the job if you become proficient with the one you choose. I like both, for different reasons. CZ is going to be a more refined weapon, killer ergo’s but there are great features on the Glock that are undeniable, simplicity being one….the trigger reset on a Glock is nicer then a stock CZ

My buddy has a cz 75 and it is extremely accurate. I really enjoyed shooting it. However I have very little experience with glocks. Good luck.

If it was me I'd get a CZ over any Glock, any time. They just have more natural point to them to me. Glock makes a file pistol, I just see the CZ as better. Better grip, grip angle, and trigger. The aftermarket is not as prevalent I guess for the CZ but I really have not sen a whole lot I'd change out of the box so it is not an issue for me. The one thing Glock has over CZ and most makers is marketing. And that just is not any reason to choose them to me.
